Chek’s Quarterback tiers.
The Blake Bortles Tier
This one could be called a tear, and is brought to you by Blake Bortles.
Blake Bortles, Jacksonville Jaguars
The quarterback who came into the league as a washed up has been, and has gotten worse. His amazing career winning percentage of 36% screams ‘Why arent you evaluating the quarterback position!” at the Jacksonville Jaguars. If you don’t have Greatness Brady himself on your team, then you evaluate the quarterback position.
For the first time in his career, Bortles completed 60% of his passes. Beat it by .2%. His resume also touts a career high quarterback rating of 88. That’s the high. Chad Henne has outperformed Bortles over four years. So yes, Bortles is a has been, and a complete waste of time for the Jaguars.
The best career out of the Bortles Tier, without accomplishing anything in his. Despite being a solid starter during his NFL tenure, he’s never been in any way a true game changer. He takes care of the ball, but lost his job to Colin Kaepernick, and now Patrick Mahones. Be like Brady Alex, take some chances.
What can you say about a man who’s only half at fault for his lousy career? The other half of course being terrible coaching in Cincinnati. He is right behind Alex Smith statistically, and appears destined to follow in his footsteps. Both Marvin Lewis and Andy Dalton will be out of Cincy within a few years, mark my words, perhap their departures might restore the potential of hope to a franchise that desperately needs it.
His career winning percentage stands at 47%, it makes sense he is a starting quarterback. Making the playoffs a mere three times, and losing with each chance. How does anyone expect him to be any better without Calvin Johnson? The Lions have long held a formidable defense, yet they rarely make the playoffs…
A whopping zero playoff appearances, count em! And this guy is tagged as a franchise quarterback. With a career losing record. And lots of games missed. Why oh why, does Tannehill still have a job? The Marvin Lewis of quarterbacks.
The Cardinals are hoping to get three to six solid games out of the veteran while their young QB prepares. With Bradford, you’re about as good as when you had Palmer, which got you nowhere as a franchise. The sooner Bradford is injured the better, at least if the Cardinals actually want to compete.
The guy is an athlete, not a quarterback. While he does sport a career winning percentage, but I believe it to be a case of the system benefitting the player. Not the best quarterback, but athletic enough to have success if given proper freedom.
This guy has been the leader of multiple bad teams since entering the league, and is a weaker version of Cam Newton. How does one expect to see him succeed? He caught the interception bug, and seemed to delight in throwing the ball to the opposite team.Winston will falter his way straight out of the league, mark my words!
